How to wear disco jeans
Keep tops fairly simple
By this we mean avoid tops will lots of volume, getting the balance right when wearing high waisted skinny jeans can be tricky, of course a little volume can help balance out the look, but don’t go overboard with ruffles and volume otherwise you’ll just look top heavy and as though you’re trying to hide a growing baby bump.
Try a crop top
Depending on whether you’re trying to keep things covered up, trying a crop top could be a simple way of showing a little bit of skin when wearing your disco jeans.
Play with proportions
We love to pair long jackets, sleeveless styles work just as well too, with high-waisted jeans. It’s advised that you avoid short, bulky jackets as they’ll just create a boxy shape and make the waist look wider than it is.
Wear them at the natural waist
Your natural waistline, the narrowest part of the torso, is where all high-waisted pants should sit because it’s the most flattering. If you’re more straight up and down, having the pants sit here will also give you more of an hourglass shape and help cinch that waist.
Darker colours will make legs look leaner
If you're worried about the size of your legs, just remember that dark coloured jeans will help your legs look leaner, creating a more flattering silhouette when wearing your disco jeans.
